[seqfan] Should this be in OEIS?

I recently wrote a paper, "Fibonacci meets Hofstadter", which will
shortly appear in the Fibonacci quarterly
(http://webhome.cs.uvic.ca/~ruskey/Publications/MetaFib/FiboHofs.html).
It contains the following solution to a recurrence relation:
a(n) =
0 if n < 0,
3 if n = 0 mod 3
6 if n = 1 mod 3
Fibonacci(m+5) if n = 3m+2
Is it worthwhile entering a(n) for n > 0 into the OEIS? On the one hand
it is somewhat
silly since is it is just the shuffling of 3 trivial sequences and one
would hate to
open the floodgates to submissions of shuffles of sequences that are
already in OEIS ---
and on the other hand it is a sequence that will appear in a math
journal and is not
entirely contrived. Opinions?
Cheers,
Frank
